Dr. William P. Caldon, D.M.D., owner of Plattsburgh’s High Peaks Dental, explains how symptoms of celiac disease manifest themselves in dental enamel, and how this can be used to diagnose the condition before it causes more serious health problems.
Plattsburgh, NY — April 8, 2015 — Renowned Plattsburgh dentist Dr. William Caldon published a new article entitled “How Your Teeth Can Help You Diagnose a Gluten Allergy.” In the article, he discusses how celiac, or gluten intolerance, can be caught early on by working with your dentist to identify telltale tooth enamel problems.
Says Caldon, “Gluten-free diets aren’t just the latest fad — they are the result of more and more individuals being diagnosed with celiac disease. The disease is commonly known as a gastroenterological condition that causes a host of problems, from digestive disorders to rashes to malnutrition. But the reality is that it can have even more serious ramifications on your overall health if left untreated. The problem? It’s hard to diagnose. One possible solution: Take a look at your teeth.”
Dr. Caldon has been a co-owner of High Peaks Dental since 1996 after serving in the United States Air Force for 20 years and retiring as a Colonel. He received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville and his Bachelor’s from Thomas More College. In 2013, USA Today featured Caldon as one of America’s Premier Dentists.
